ACU, in partnership with Lumsa Università, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) and Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP), seeks to appoint one outstanding candidate to the PhD (in Contemporary Humanism).
The PhD (in Contemporary Humanism) program aims to develop knowledge and critical skills in reading and interpreting the historical, cultural, literary, philosophical and educational tradition in its making, and in its effects on the present, from the point of view of the category of “humanism”.
The international and interdisciplinary structure of the program aims to provide an adequate context not only for an integrated “humanistic approach”, but also for an integral education of students through a contamination of styles and methods of research and teaching, beyond disciplinary and national boundaries.
In addition to the development of specific scientific and methodological competences calibrated on each curriculum, the program’s common goals are to consolidate and improve:
The successful applicant must be approved by both ACU and the Partner University Management Committee.
Applicants for the PhD (in Contemporary Humanism) must submit their application directly to ACU for consideration.
You will need to apply for the PhD at ACU and, as part of your application, include a statement of motivation relating to the contemporary humanism program.
